Somebody put the emergency services on standby, the big banana is attempting some DIY!

I have wanted a fermentation fridge for a while now and thanks to videos by two brewtubers, I finally got my act together and am ready to give it a go.

    Great update bud on the fermenting fridge well done , I've gone old school with the stc1000 and I have another one incase I get another fridge. You've got the same problem trying to sneak it into the house well I've got one in, need another one so that's even harder to sneak in.

    loving it chap place is looking well. I'm still about 3 yrs away from getting my drive done. only one thing and u hate to be the bearer of bad news. The moisture created in the fridge the chip board won't last. It doesn't like moisture. multiply is the only option here. Sorry for mentioning it but better that that a full fermentor coupin on you during the night. Do you know anyone that goes up and down to letterkenny at all and I can see about sorting you out? I need to get my ass a fridge….cheers chap

    Great stuff. Think I'd push the boat out and get a bit of ply. What kind of clearance is there above your bin? I'm keen to get a similar fridge but doubt my Young's fermenter (with the 4 inch screw lid/air lock) would fit? I know you can get low profile air locks so may be it would just about fit? Cheers.

    Great diy video! The inkbird looks like a very cool piece of kit. You'll never look back with your fridge. The biggest change I found was I got my life back. I wasn't constantly nursemaiding the FV before hand. Nice looking shed and property too. Do you have much land? Cheers Dino

    Nice work on the fermentation fridge! I wired up the STC and it was actually a little easier than I thought, but did not know of the Inkbird as an option then. I would have done the same thing you did! Great stuff!
